Shell Lifts Force Majeure on Gas Supplies to Nigeria's NLNG

Reuters

ABUJA, Aug 21 (Reuters) – Shell said on Friday that its Nigerian joint venture lifted its force majeure on natural gas supplies to the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Co (NLNG) after repairing a pipeline.

The force majeure was put in place on Aug. 4 after the company discovered a leak on the Eastern Gas Gathering System (EGGS-1).

"The leak was caused by a crude theft connection, apparently installed by people who thought the line was transporting crude oil," a spokesman for Shell said in an emailed statement.

Cheaper to provide free Oil rather than repair facilities and put lives at risk?
